over the past 6 years since I first started blogging my life has changed in so many different ways and blogging has taken me in many different directions. My first blog I wrote for 6 years and you all followed my journey along the vintage path, my ever changing home, my vintage collections, my boys growth and development, sewing projects, selling at vintage fairs and then in organising them, and then my lovely 50's style wedding and marriage to a wonderful man. It fulfilled a need in my life at that time and your friendships and support kept me going through the ups and downs and then you shared in the happy moments to and there were many. Having to delete that blog left me lost for a while and I seem to have been floating around uncertain as to where my life needed to take me. I started to write this blog as I wanted to stay connected to you all but to be honest my heart hasn't really been in it after the bad experience involved in my last one I didn't feel like I could be as open and honest with you as I once had and that left me unsure with what to share and I wanted to be true to myself so I have dipped in and out for the past few months. Adopting Midi the greyhound has given me that new direction and drive in my life and I have found an overwhelming sense of peace and fulfilment spending time with him and becoming a volunteer for the retired greyhound trust. Helping out and setting up at the local dog shows and running stalls for them trying to raise money for the trust gives you a different out look on life and makes you aware of important things. I haven't been buying anything vintage for the past few months in fact I haven't bought anything for the house full stop. My days are spent contently at home with Midi. His health took a turn for the worst 3 weeks ago where he very sadly had 15 fits and seizers in 3 hours it was a horrible and very stressful week. We very nearly lost him 2 days later and its taken us 2 weeks of tender loving care to bring him back from the edge but he is still with us and doing great now. He is taking a very high dose of epileptic drugs but his body has adapted well so much so at the dog show last Saturday he won some classes :-) I have decided that the greyhounds and Midi are were my heart is and have decided to start a blog up its called Marvellous Midi- greyhound and Co and can be found here at midianceltic.blogspot.com I will be sharing our journey together so please pop over and have a look and you can find out all about Midi's first holiday to Cornwall a few days ago and what classes he won :-) I will still post on here from time to time to.
